OROY: Does Clyde Edwards-Helaire Have A Shot? | AG

I don’t think that Edwards-Helaire will lead the NFL in rushing this season just for the main reason being that they will look to throw the ball more and more, but the idea that he couldn’t total upwards of 1,500 total yards on the year is an intriguing one to me. He possesses all of the talents to be a threat on the ground; elusiveness, tackle-breaking ability, acceleration, and second level manipulation key among them. One of the reasons the Chiefs drafted him was because they saw a runner that could make the attempts rushing the football more efficient. I don’t want to drag on Damien Williams, but oftentimes if he was met in the backfield or a hole opened up somewhere he wasn’t looking for one, the play didn’t go very well. Edwards-Helaire can change that with his patience and contact balance, turning rushes that went for negative or short gains in 2019 to intermediate and longer ones.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire considered best offseason addition for KC Chiefs | KCKingdom

The defending Super Bowl champions appear set at every position and used free agency to add a little depth. The club got a big year down the stretch and in the playoffs from Damien Williams. But Andy Reid and company added a spark plug in first-rounder Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who figures to make the offense more dangerous than ever.

1 Player Each NFL Team Should Consider Trading Before the 2020 Season | B/R

With Edwards-Helaire set to take over the starting role and with second-year back Darwin Thompson behind him, Kansas City should consider moving Williams.

Williams is in the final year of his contract and may not be a member of the organization after this season anyway. However, he could potentially bring a lot of value in a trade as plenty of teams would likely want to add a player who probably should have been named Super Bowl MVP.

Jamal Adams trade rumors: Jets expected to ‘stand pat’ | AA

From NFL Now: #Jets S Jamal Adams has a list of 8 teams he’d want to be traded to without needing a new deal, even while he has demanded an extension from his current team. Either way, expect NYJ to stand pat and let this play out.

Kareem Hunt no longer frustrated about missing out on Chiefs’ Super Bowl win | ChiefsWire

“I have moved on from that,” Hunt told reporters on Monday. “I love those guys. I got brothers on that team. I came in with a lot of those players. Love the coaches there. All good people and they deserved it, and I am happy for them. I talk to a lot of them and I am very happy for them. They are champs—they deserve it. I know how hard that team works and how hard they stress to be great.”

Tyreek Hill’s Receiving Yard Total Set High By Oddsmakers | ArrowheadReport

Unlike Hill’s touchdown number, I’ll take the over on this one. The offensive production starts with Hill and, barring injury, I’d expect him to put up similar numbers to his 2018 season where he hauled in 1,479 yards.

The players’ side believes the league has no legal position to hold this year’s money in escrow. The NFLPA is adamant about borrowing for future years to offset a potential salary cap drop in 2021. To them, flat caps for a few years > giving back money in 2020.

Spoke with @TesslerSports about RB Raheem Mostert and his trade demand from #49ers. His request was simply to bring Mostert in line with the highest paid RBs on the team. Tevin Coleman makes $4.55M in 2020 and that’s where Mostert wants to be. He has two years left on his deal.

Proud of our young Phenom for getting involved with the issues of our time. He could’ve stayed silent (like Jordan did), but decided to take a stand. KC should be proud of this young man.
